About the event

From April 16th 2024 the first major international exhibition of the UK's unique and radical Disability Arts Movement, showcasing seven of the leading radical disabled artists from this world-shaking arts movement that helped win rights for disabled people and create the same time a large and important artistic production around these themes..

The goal of CREA's 2024 flagship exhibition is to change the way we look at disabled people, putting them in power rather than treating them with pity.

The exhibition, supported by the British Council and Arts Council, conveys the enthusiasm and creativity of the DAM Movem nt, with podcasts and publications planned throughout the seven months of the exhibition. Furthermore, the Graphic Novel Crip Arte Spazio showing the DAM blew up Venice and won the Golden Lion. “CRIP ARTE SPAZIO: THE DAM IN VENICE” conveys the sheer exuberance, joy and creative explosion of the strong DAM movement.

Curated by David Hevey with exhibition design by Nina Shen, the more than 20 works are framed by enormous, witty and extraordinary protest banners, imposingcomic strips describing the history of the DAM, and giant cinema screens showing films on artists directed by David. Even with our graphic novel Crip Arte Spazio, which shows the DAM blowing up Venice and winning the Golden Lion, CRIP ARTE SPAZIO: THE DAM IN VENICE conveys the sheer exuberance, joy and creative explosion of the great DAM Movement.

In addition to works by artists Terence Birch, Tony Heaton OBE, Jameisha Prescod, Abi Palmer, Ker Wallwork, Tanya Raabe-Webber, Jason Wilsher-Mills and Keith Armstrong, there there will be podcasts and publications during the seven months of the exhibition.
